I solo hiked Cabot on Saturday, and I had a great time!  It was chilly and the leaves were turning; I could feel that fall had arrived.

There I went...

A lovely little bridge:

Feeling good...

Fresh morning sky:

Going up...

Some beautiful leaves turned red and orange:

The intersection with Kilkenny Ridge Trail:

The trail was bespeckled with colorful fall leaves.

I took a few pictures at the viewpoint on the way up to Mt. Cabot:

After that brief stop, I continued...

I was excited to arrive at Cabot Cabin.

I hiked past the cabin for a couple tenths of a mile to tag the summit of Cabot.

After that, I went back to the cabin and had a snack.  I heard mice crawling and squeaking above me in the ceiling the whole time, which was a little unsettling but also amusing.

Heading down, looking up...

The leaves cast many intricate shadows on the ground.

The ascent of Cabot is enjoyable; the trail is lovely!
